Poland’s Ministry of Climate has signed three agreements to modernise the country’s electricity infrastructure.

The first agreement was signed with the Warsaw Branch of PGE Dystrybucja, for a total value of over 85 million Polish złoty (approximately 19,7 million euros). The second was signed with the Skarżysko-Kamienna Branch of PGE Dystrybucja, for a total value of over 65 million Polish złoty (approximately 15 million euros). The third one involved the operator Energa and it concerned the modernisation of its grids in the municipalities of Płock and Olsztyn to be better connected with renewable energy, for a total funding of 70 million Polish złoty (approximately 16,2 million euros).

“We are starting an extremely important and long-awaited process of modernising and increasing the flexibility of power grids,” commented Paulina Hennig-Kloska, Minister of Climate and Environment. “But also the use of intelligent solutions that will reduce the cost of energy balancing in the network.”

Indeed, to balance the huge financial investments expected by the Ministry, it will be crucial to install smart grid technology and energy storage. The modernisation of the power system is a pre-condition for connecting renewable energy sources, both for small prosumer installations and large power plants. This, in turn, will increase the reliability of the electricity supply and the country’s energy security.
